Tuesday Discovery Walk - The Hidden Treasures of Orchard Rd

Orchard Road - the name conjures up visions of glitzy shops, glamorous hotels & hi-end restaurants run by celebrity chefs. But dig a little deeper and you’ll unearth much less known nooks & crannies which bear testament to its earlier years as an area replete with plantations, farms - & yes, orchards!

And just to prove this is a different Orchard Road, we'll start at the very...end! Starting at Dhoby Ghaut to learn the origins of its name, we'll visit one of the oldest churches in Singapore known as the “Scots Church”, nestled in beside Singapore’s incubators for art talents - SOTA and LaSalle. A walk past the Istana Park for a glimpse of the official residence of the President of Singapore will remind us Singapore’s colonial roots, & you can also admire the nearby facade of the last remaining traditional southern Chinese mansion.

And finally you will be blown away by the beauty of Emerald Hill with its Peranakan shophouses, a tucked away enclave of tranquility a stone's throw from hustle and bustle of the Orchard shopping district.

Small walking tours will have a maximum of 10 participants but also need a minimum number of 7 to go ahead; if we don't have enough people we will inform those who have registered (& refund their payment) by the evening before at the very latest. But we hope they will always run!!

Please note that the cost of these tours is a little higher as we are keeping the number small. The quality will be however very high.

Jane's SG Tours in Korean/Chinatown Walk(추석특집 차이나타운 워킹투어)

과거와 현재가 만나는 그 곳, 컬러풀 차이나타운

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

차이나타운은 가장 오래된 건물들과 사원들이 남아있는 역사 깊은 명소일 뿐 아니라 가장 트렌디한 바와 카페들이 자리잡고 있는 곳이기도 합니다. 알록달록한 파스텔톤의 샵하우스가 배경이 되어 차이나타운에서 찍는 모든 사진은 인생샷이 된답니다. 싱가포르 중국이민자들의 전통문화와 더불어 싱가포르 젊은이들이 사랑하는 핫플레이스를 여유와 낭만이 가득한 워킹투어로 경험해보세요.

 

[간략코스안내]

텔록아이어(Telok Ayer) MRT역 A번 출구 미팅 -> 티안혹켕템플(천복궁) -> 안시앙 힐 & 클럽스트리트 -> URA 시티갤러리 -> 커피브레이크 -> 사고 스트리트(불아사) -> 스미스 스트리트 -> 파고다 스트리트(차이나타운 MRT역, 종착지)

 

[미팅 시간] 10월 2일 (월) 오전 9시 20분

[차이나타운 워킹투어 - 무엇을 하는지 궁금해요]

텔록아이어 스트리트는 싱가포르에서 가장 오래된 중국사원인 티안혹켕템플(천복궁)을 비롯하여 초기 이민자들이 세운 모스크, 사원 등이 나란히 자리를 잡고 있는 곳입니다. 다양한 신들이 이웃이 되어 옹기종기 모여있는 싱가포르에서만 볼 수 있는 특이한 풍경을 놓치지 마세요.

 

헤리티지 투어라서 옛날 이야기만 할거라 짐작하셨나요? 한국의 도시개발공사와 비슷한 기관인 URA 시티갤러리에서 싱가포르의 도시개발정책과 국방, 경제, 정치 분야와 같은 일반 정보들을 전시물들과 함께 쉽게 알려드립니다.

 

싱가포르에 오시면 누구나 맛보시는 카야 토스트와 싱가포르 로컬커피를 함께 즐기며 달콤한 휴식시간을 가져봅니다. 싱가포르 로컬커피를 처음 선보인 사람은 누구일까요? 현지인처럼 커피를 주문 하고 싶으신가요? 음식에 담겨 있는 역사와 재미난 스토리를 알게 되시면 더욱 특별한 경험이 됩니다.

 

차이나타운의 개성 있는 거리 사고 스트리트, 스미스 스트리트를 함께 걸으며 중국계 싱가포르인들의 장례 문화, 음식 문화를 알아보고 차이나타운 곳곳에서 목격할 수 있는 쿨리와 삼수이 여인들의 절절한 사연들을 들어봅니다.

 

[차이나타운 워킹투어 - 무엇이 좋은가요?]

  • 대규모의 단체 투어로 많은 분들이 한 가이드를 따르며 바쁘게 여러 곳을 찍는 투어가 아닌, 소규모 그룹으로 (최소 3인부터 출발, 최대 15인으로 제한) 구석 구석을 여유 있게 걸으면서, 그 지역에 대해 충분히 이해하고 경험할 수 있는 투어입니다.
  • 싱가포르 차이나타운은 전세계 여행자들이 워킹투어로 경험하는 곳으로 저희 투어는 한국인의 문화와 정서에 맞게 투어코스와 내용을 맞춤설계 하여 영어로 듣는 것과는 다른 재미와 깊이를 경험하실 수 있습니다.

  • 본 워킹투어는 약3시간 동안 진행되지만, 중간에 쉬어가는 곳이 여러 번 포함되어 있어 더위를 피하면서 어르신들과 어린이들도 거뜬히 해낼 수 있는 투어입니다.

  • 로컬들만 아는 뒷골목 명소들로 안내해드리며 저희 비비시스터즈가 오랜 기간 발굴하고 추천하는 맛집 정보는 덤입니다.

  • 아이들에게 중국 문화와 역사에 대한 흥미를 제공해주고, 아이들이 쉽게 다민족 국가인 싱가포르의 문화적 특성을 이해하게 될 것입니다.

  • 일방적으로 가이드의 설명을 듣는 투어가 아닌, 함께 소통하고 궁금한 점도 언제나 물을 수 있는 쌍방향 투어입니다.

  • 싱가포르에 최소 5년 이상 거주하여 싱가포르 현지 생활을 잘 아는 가이드의 생생한 경험을 들을 수 있는 투어입니다.

  • 가벼운 옷차림, 편안한 신발(운동화 등), 물, 우산 또는 우의를 준비해 주세요.

  • 유모차 또는 휠체어 이용 방문객은 계단 등 투어경로 여건으로 인해 참여가 어려우니 양해 부탁드립니다.

  • 갑작스런 기후 변화 또는 투어 예정 장소의 예기치 못한 상황 발생시 투어 경로 변경 및 취소가 발생할 수 있음을 알려드립니다.

Green Singapore Walking Tour/ Pulau Ubin's Wild West

Come & join us for one of our most popular Walking Tours, on the delightful Pulau Ubin, arguably Singapore's last real kampong.

And in the "Wild West" of Ubin, we will see the extraordinary German Girl's Shrine plus arguably the most eclectic temple in Singapore with its Thai & Tibetan sections, Hindu deities & more!

Ubin itself is a treat - with its swaying coconut palms, shady trails in overgrown rubber plantations, rustic roads, secluded beaches and flourishing mangroves it feels like you've stepped back into the Singapore of the 1960's; in fact the slow lane starts as soon as you join the queue for the bumboat at Changi!

Our very experienced and knowledgeable guide (an NParks guide as well as STB guide) will point out areas of particular interest, especially wildlife. We will also look at the historical significance of the area.

After a 3.5 hour walk, including refreshments (included in the price) on the island we will head back by ferry to the "mainland".

Tuesday Discovery Walk - Kampong Glam

 

Explore the neighbourhood of Kampong Glam, the heart of Singapore’s Malay community. This is where the Malay Royalty once resided among Javanese, Sumatrans, Arabs, as well as Chinese communities, all of whom left their mark in different ways.

We will start in neighbouring Victoria Street and learn about the Malabar Muslim community, then we will visit tombs of the Malay royalty in one of the oldest cemeteries in Singapore, dating back to the 1820s. In the cool ambience of the nearby Malay Heritage Centre (the former Sultan’s Palace) you will learn the colourful & delightful, at times even romantic, history, heritage and culture of Singapore's Malay community.

After a refreshing stop for coffee and local kueh (cakes), we'll walk through the streets and lanes and hear their stories - why one stretch of Bussorah Street was known as Kampong Kaji (Pilgrim Village) & part of Beach Road Kampong Tembaga (Copper Village). What made the residents of the Gudung Kuning (the Yellow Mansion) rich and famous?

We will end by exploring a little gem of a mosque, & one of the few founded by a woman - the Masjid Hajjah Fatimah - which has escaped the redevelopment of the area.

Jane's SG Tours in Korean/Civic District Walk(올드 시티&싱가포르 리버)

싱가포르를 세운 영국인 래플즈 경의 발자취를 따라, 올드시티 & 싱가포르 리버

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

 

싱가포르는 19세기에 영국인 래플즈 경이 싱가포르 강변에 첫 발을 내딛고 무역항을 세우면서, 무역의 중심지로 발전해왔습니다. 싱가포르 내 영국 식민 정부의 행정 중심지였던 올드시티(시빅 디스트릭트)에 남아 있는 화려한 유럽식 건물들을 둘러보고, 무역 거점이자 현재는 낭만이 가득한 싱가포르 여행의 필수 코스, 싱가포르 강변을 함께 걸으며 재미있는 비하인드 스토리와 함께 싱가포르의 생생한 역사의 현장 속으로 빠져봅시다!

 

 

[간략 코스 안내]

시티홀 MRT역 출발-> 세인트 앤드류 대성당 -> 내셔널 갤러리 싱가포르 -> 커피브레이크 -> 더 아트 하우스 (구 국회의사당) -> 래플즈 동상 -> 싱가포르 강 (보트키) -> 아시아 문명 박물관 -> 빅토리아 극장과 콘서트 홀 -> 싱가포르 강변의 조각품 -> 카베나 브리지 -> 풀러튼 호텔 (종착지)

 

[미팅 시간] 10월 3일 (화) 오전 9시 20분

[올드시티(시빅 디스트릭트) 워킹투어 – 무엇을 하는지 궁금해요]

시빅 디스트릭트 (Civic District)는 도심지라는 뜻으로 싱가포르가 영국 식민지였을 때의 행정 중심지이자, 우리에게는 ‘올드시티’로 더 잘 알려진 곳입니다. 싱가포르 여행의 필수 코스인 싱가포르 강과 주변의화려한 유럽식 건물이 남아 있는 곳, 바로 그곳입니다!

시빅 디스트릭트는 싱가포르에서 가장 큰 성당인 세인트 앤드류 대성당에서부터 시작됩니다. 영국 국교인성공회에 대한 이야기와 지금의 새하얀 고딕 건물이 완성되기까지 두 번이나 벼락을 맞았던 역사를 포함한재미난 비하인드 스토리를 놓치지 마세요.

싱가포르에 시청역은 있지만 시청은 없는 것 알고 계시나요? 왜냐하면 옛 시청 건물은 옛 대법원 건물과함께 싱가포르 최대의 박물관, 내셔널 갤러리로 재탄생하였기 때문입니다. 싱가포르의 생생한 역사 이야기가 담긴 내셔널 갤러리 건물 구석 구석의 역사적 현장을 직접 탐방해 봅시다. 내셔널 갤러리에서 바라보는백만불짜리 뷰는 덤입니다! (본 워킹투어는 내셔널 갤러리의 건축물을 중심으로 한 내부 관람 및 설명을 포함하고 있으나, 티켓이 필요한 예술 작품 관람은 포함되지 않음을 알려 드립니다.)

 

내셔널 갤러리를 나오면 여행 사진에서 수없이 보던 싱가포르 강이 눈 앞에 펼쳐집니다! 싱가포르 건국의아버지 래플즈 경을 만나 싱가포르에 무역항을 세우게 된 사연과 파란만장한 인생 이야기를 듣는 것만으로도 싱가포르가 더욱 특별하게 느껴질 것입니다. 또한 싱가포르 강변은 곳곳에 있는 거리 아트(조각품)로도 유명합니다. 조각품에 담긴 스토리를 통해 수많은 무역상과 쿨리로 북적이던 무역항, 싱가포르 강으로 되돌아 가보는 건 어떨까요?

 

싱가포르 강변을 거닐다 보면 화려한 유럽식 건물들로 발길이 멈추게 될 텐데요. 시계탑이 돋보이는 빅토리아 극장과 콘서트 홀, 과거에 우체국 건물이었다가 고급 호텔로 변신한 풀러튼 호텔 등 - 다른 생김새 만큼 저마다의 쓰임새와 이야기를 갖고 있습니다. 외국 분위기가 물씬 느껴지는 유럽식 건물과 함께 찍는 인증샷, 잊지 마세요.

Jane's SG Tours in Korean/Kampong Glam Walk (캄퐁글람 워킹투어)

이국적인 정취가 가득한 싱가포르 캄퐁글람 워킹투어

 

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

싱가포르에서 이국적인 정취가 가득한 캄퐁글람, 저희와 함께 걸으며 한때 이곳에 살았던 말레이 왕족들의 드라마틱한 흥망성쇠 이야기와 싱가포르 문화의 뿌리인 말레이 문화 속에 푹 빠져봅시다!!

 

 

[간략 코스 안내]

부기스(Bugis) MRT역 A번 출구 미팅-> 잘란 쿠보 이슬람 공동묘지-> 말라바 모스크 -> 알사고프 마드라사 (이슬람 종교 학교) -> 말레이 헤리티지 센터 -> 술탄 모스크 -> 부소라 스트리트 -> 아랍 스트리트 -> 말레이 전통 문화 체험 (말레이 전통 디저트 시식, 무알콜 향수 (아타) 시향, 말레이 전통 의상 입어보기 등) -> 하지 레인 (종착지)

 

[미팅 시간] 10월 4일 (수) 오전 9시 20분

 

[미팅 장소] 부기스(Bugis) MRT역 (녹색 Eastwest Line & 파란색 Downtown Line) A번 출구로 올라오세요.

 

[캄퐁글람은 어떤 곳인가요?]

우리에게 아랍 스트리트로 더 잘 알려진 캄퐁글람은 싱가포르의 원주민이자 다민족 국가인 싱가포르에서 두 번째로 큰 민족인 말레이인들이 모여 살았던 곳입니다. 마치 차이나타운에는 중국 이민자들이, 리틀인디아에는 인도 이민자들이 모여 살았던 것처럼 말이죠. 그런데 캄퐁글람에는 한때 말레이 왕족들이 살던 궁전과 그들이 이용했던 이슬람 사원, 심지어 그들이 죽은 후에 묻힌 묘지가 지금까지 남아있습니다. 어쩐지 그들의 흥망성쇠 이야기가 궁금해지지 않나요?

캄퐁글람의 랜드마크이면서 싱가포르에서 가장 아름다운 이슬람 사원인 술탄 모스크에도 재미있는 이야기가 많이 담겨 있습니다. 캄퐁글람에 살았던 말레이인들과 아랍인들의 종교인 이슬람교를 직접 모스크를 방문하면서 배우는 것도 의미 있을 것입니다.

캄퐁글람 골목 구석 구석에는 전통 가게들이 남아 있습니다. 역사 깊은 카페에 잠깐 앉아 알록달록하고 달콤한 말레이 전통 디저트를 맛보며 잠시 쉬었다가, 무슬림들이 사용하는 무알콜 향수와 화려한 말레이 전통 의상도 만나 봅시다.

마지막으로는 캄퐁글람에서 가장 트렌디한 곳, 하지 레인 골목을 돌아보며, 그곳에 담긴 이야기도 듣고 멋진 인생샷도 남겨 보세요.

Celebrate the Monkey God festival in Tiong Bahru

Touted as one of the world’s coolest neighbourhoods by Vogue and ‘Singapore’s hippest hood’ by CNN, Tiong Bahru is seen as one of the most happening hoods in town. Everyone loves both its quaint old world charm and its modern "hipster" image.

We will take a walk around this charming and picturesque neighbourhood to explore both its pre-war and post-war architecture, including one of Singapore's oldest public housing estates, with its row after row of art deco buildings, and learn about the history and stories associated with them.

You will also learn more about Tiong Bahru’s rich heritage from stories of prominent pioneer community leaders to residents who were born in the air raid shelter during World War II, to religion and rituals, culture and food, and more.

The transformation from swamp to swank began in the 1930s, and some of the landmarks from that era still stand today, including the residential blocks and the first Monkey God Temple dedicated to the main character from Chinese literary classic Journey to the West.

A special treat awaits us on this tour as it is the Monkey God’s Festival, which falls on the 16th day of the Eighth Lunar month. Be amazed by the sights and sounds of opera singing, dragon dance and get involved as we follow the procession with the locals and walked around the neighbourhood accompanied by lion dancing, clashing cymbals and banging drums.

Freemasonry in Singapore

There is a colonial building here in the heart of Singapore that few people have entered and there is a society that few people know anything about!

Many people have wondered what takes place in this elegant & distinctive building in Coleman Street; come on this special tour to find out about this fraternal society, the Freemasons.

Freemasonry started out in Britain in the 16th century and notable members of this rather secretive, all-male society have included Mozart, George Washington and Sir Stamford Raffles, the founding father of Singapore.

Freemasonry was first established in Singapore on December 8, 1845. Even with a lengthy history of more than 150 years, people know little about the society. Who are they, who were their members, and how have they contributed to Singapore over the years?

On this tour, you will learn all this plus the history, rituals, costumes and community of the Freemasons. The highlight of the tour will be to visit the splendid Freemasons Hall building, constructed in 1879.

Jane's SG Tours in Korean/Kampong Glam Walk (캄퐁글람 워킹투어)

이국적인 정취가 가득한 싱가포르 캄퐁글람 워킹투어

 

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

싱가포르에서 이국적인 정취가 가득한 캄퐁글람, 저희와 함께 걸으며 한때 이곳에 살았던 말레이 왕족들의 드라마틱한 흥망성쇠 이야기와 싱가포르 문화의 뿌리인 말레이 문화 속에 푹 빠져봅시다!!

 

 

[간략 코스 안내]

부기스(Bugis) MRT역 A번 출구 미팅-> 잘란 쿠보 이슬람 공동묘지-> 말라바 모스크 -> 알사고프 마드라사 (이슬람 종교 학교) -> 말레이 헤리티지 센터 -> 술탄 모스크 -> 부소라 스트리트 -> 아랍 스트리트 -> 말레이 전통 문화 체험 (말레이 전통 디저트 시식, 무알콜 향수 (아타) 시향, 말레이 전통 의상 입어보기 등) -> 하지 레인 (종착지)

 

[미팅 시간] 10월 10일 (화) 오전 9시 20분

 

[미팅 장소] 부기스(Bugis) MRT역 (녹색 Eastwest Line & 파란색 Downtown Line) A번 출구로 올라오세요.

 

[캄퐁글람은 어떤 곳인가요?]

우리에게 아랍 스트리트로 더 잘 알려진 캄퐁글람은 싱가포르의 원주민이자 다민족 국가인 싱가포르에서 두 번째로 큰 민족인 말레이인들이 모여 살았던 곳입니다. 마치 차이나타운에는 중국 이민자들이, 리틀인디아에는 인도 이민자들이 모여 살았던 것처럼 말이죠. 그런데 캄퐁글람에는 한때 말레이 왕족들이 살던 궁전과 그들이 이용했던 이슬람 사원, 심지어 그들이 죽은 후에 묻힌 묘지가 지금까지 남아있습니다. 어쩐지 그들의 흥망성쇠 이야기가 궁금해지지 않나요?

캄퐁글람의 랜드마크이면서 싱가포르에서 가장 아름다운 이슬람 사원인 술탄 모스크에도 재미있는 이야기가 많이 담겨 있습니다. 캄퐁글람에 살았던 말레이인들과 아랍인들의 종교인 이슬람교를 직접 모스크를 방문하면서 배우는 것도 의미 있을 것입니다.

캄퐁글람 골목 구석 구석에는 전통 가게들이 남아 있습니다. 역사 깊은 카페에 잠깐 앉아 알록달록하고 달콤한 말레이 전통 디저트를 맛보며 잠시 쉬었다가, 무슬림들이 사용하는 무알콜 향수와 화려한 말레이 전통 의상도 만나 봅시다.

마지막으로는 캄퐁글람에서 가장 트렌디한 곳, 하지 레인 골목을 돌아보며, 그곳에 담긴 이야기도 듣고 멋진 인생샷도 남겨 보세요.

 

 

[캄퐁글람 워킹투어 - 무엇이 좋은가요?]

Traditional Trades & Crafts tour

Traditional Trades & Crafts tour

 

Many traditional crafts and trades have disappeared from Singapore and others are very rare these days.

In the past, traditional craftsmen often painstakingly created their works with little else but their hands and some simple materials and tools. These master craftsmen include the likes of various cultural paraphernalia makers, movie billboard painters, traditional costume makers, old school tailors and shoemakers, and craftsmen in many other old trades.

Today, a handful of these “masters”, many tucked away in hidden corners of Singapore, still hold on to their craft or business. Theirs is often a tale of passion and perseverance, pure sweat and hard work. We will travel to various corners of Singapore to meet some of these “masters” at their work - see the results of their labours and listen to their inspiring stories!

We start our day in an idyllic corner in Singapore where birds sing, bird lovers gather, and a birdcage maker resides. Not too far away, we track down the last movie billboard painter in Singapore. See for yourself an amazing collection of paintings by the prolific Mr Ang, which includes fifty Singapore-themed artworks to commemorate SG 50, paintings of lost Singapore scenes, graphic depictions of scenes of purgatory and the ten courts of hell, as well as re-creations of the billboards of the past.

We will meet a couple more master craftsmen with a drinks break squeezed in between, before we end our morning somewhere nearer to the city area, where you can peel off for lunch.

Deepavali evening walk through Little India plus dinner

Come and enjoy one of the most joyous & colourful festivals in Singapore! Deepavali, also known as Diwali, is the Hindu festival of lights and marks a new beginning, the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil.

Shanti, your Singaporean Indian guide, will lead you through the narrow alleys and tell you stories from epic tales. You will enter one of Singapore’s most important temples,the Sri Veeramakaliaman, and learn about the faith of Hinduism.

This year the celebration of Deepavali falls in mid October. During the entire month, Little India is transformed into a glittering bazaar where families go to buy everything needed for the auspicious day. See the myriad colours of oil lamps, of gold jewellery, of dresses fit for a princess, of sweet goodies to be shared amongst loved ones. Learn how to drape that most elegant of women's outfits, the sari.

We will end the tour with a delicious "thali" dinner in one of Shanti's favourite restaurants. But please do join up quickly, we're limiting it to 15 people so this one will sell out fast!

You'll hear the sad tales of Sago Lane, the tough life of Singapore's hard working coolies, and find out about early Singapore's"underbelly" - secret societies, houses of ill repute and opium dens.

After our last stop at the City Gallery - where you will learn about our city planning, past present & future - your guide will drop you off at the ever popular Maxwell Food Centre for discoveries of the edible variety !

Small Group Walking Tours have a maximum of 10 participants but also need a minimum number of 7 to go ahead; if we don't have enough people we will inform those who have registered (& refund their payment) by the evening before at the very latest. But we hope they will always run!!

See Hossan Leong, Karen Tan and other SG stars at our theatre event - Forever Young by Sing'theatre

Join us for a light hearted look at a serious subject - one that is sadly likely to affect most of us either directly or indirectly.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Sing’theatre presents FOREVER YOUNG! a hilarious jukebox musical adapted by Benjamin Lee from the original European cult hit written by the Swiss writer Erik Gedeon.

Join our amazing cast Hossan Leong, Karen Tan, Julian Wong, Tan Kheng Hua, Candice De Rozario, Suhaimi Yusof, Ebi Shankara for an unforgettable experience of what it means to be Forever Young....and rock in your chairs to Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, and for the hard of hearing, there’s even Led Zeppelin!

Synposis: It is 2067 and a nursing home houses a group of actors who were previously pillars of the Singapore arts scene. Looked after by their no-nonsense nurse, Sister Sara, these nonagenarians still think they’re limber enough to belt out musical theatre canons, rock classics, and the occasional scene from better known local television shows... so once Sister Sara leaves the room, the wigs come off, dentures fly, and walking frames become stage props and you’ll see why they say age is only a (musical) number.

Tuesday Discovery Walk- Singapore's Saints & Sinners

Come with us to explore our island's oldest neighbourhood, and learn about the early pioneers who helped shape Singapore's future. Step back to a time when CHIJMES was a peaceful oasis, occupied by French nuns dedicated to girls' education and the abandoned babies left to their care. A time when the La Salle Brothers founded Singapore's earliest Roman Catholic church, next to which Indian convicts built their prison. A time when an ambitious Irish architect left his everlasting imprint on this fledgling colony.

Discover the rich tapestry of the Waterloo Street arts precinct, a small but vibrant area which is emblematic of Singapore's cultural and religious diversity. Here you'll find a Synagogue, a Roman Catholic church, a Buddhist and a Hindu Temple, as well as a calligraphy centre, dance studio, visual arts centre, street art and much more.

As part of this year's Singapore Writers Festival we bring you a unique opportunity to retrace the steps of literary heroes from the books of Dawn Farnham, a very international lady who although now living in Australia, spent 12 happy years in Singapore, working as a Friends of the Museums volunteer docent, guiding in ACM and the Peranakan Museum.

The Red Thread is the first book of her Straits Quartet, a passionate and best-selling series of historical fiction set in 19th century Singapore.

Her Thread becomes ours as we walk from Chinatown through Boat Quay and the Civic District and bring to life the colourful characters of this book, the two main protagonists and lovers - Zhen, once a coolie and a member of the triad, and Charlotte, an 18-year-old Scots girl - together with real figures from Singapore’s historical past.

Let’s step back in time into the heady atmosphere of old Singapore where piracy, crime, triads and tigers were commonplace, and different worlds struggled to create mutual understanding.

Our tour will end at Armenian Street where we will meet the author for a discussion and the opportunity to have her sign your book/s.

Finding Maria - a literary walk & meet the author tour

As part of this year's Singapore Writers Festival we bring you a unique opportunity to retrace the steps of literary heroes from the books of Dawn Farnham, a very international lady who although now living in Australia, spent 12 happy years in Singapore, working as a Friends of the Museums volunteer docent, guiding in ACM and the Peranakan Museum.

Finding Maria is a study of the brutality of war and Singapore’s post-war years brought to vivid life by the immaculate research Dawn is known for. This fictional story (previously published under the title A Crowd of Twisted Things) is based on the turbulent times of 1950s, when Singapore went through a series of racial and religious riots. Tensions had been simmering for months over the custody battle for wartime waif Maria Hertogh between her Malay-Muslim foster mother and her Dutch-Catholic biological parents & this case brought things to a violent and divisive end.

Our tour will start the Harmony in Diversity Gallery describing the journey of Singapore’s unique identity. and where we will find out more about the Maria Hertogh case. We'll then hop on the MRT to explore the place where Maria was kept during the court hearings, before finishing our tour at the National Gallery (the former Supreme Court) where the final dramatic events took place. Again, the author will meet us there for a discussion and book signing.

After a short break, you will have an opportunity to join a special reading by one of our leading Singaporean authors, Josephine Chia, of one of her stories inspired by Maria herself.

Our November theatre event/ "Sanctuary" by the Necessary Stage

 

The Necessary Stage is one of Singapore's most cutting edge theatre companies. It continues its 30th anniversary season with another provocative work—Sanctuary, an international collaboration with HANCHU-YUEI, one of Tokyo’s most innovative theatre companies.It presents assorted characters—from social media influencers to virtual personal assistants—through the lens of hot-button issues of the day such as surveillance, alternative fact and post-life. Sanctuary investigates the fragility of the human condition, at a time when technology is eroding our humanity. We are the data, but the data is never ours.

Synopsis: A terminally ill woman hires a digital legacy company to record video greetings for her children to watch long after she is gone. In our technologically accelerating world, this scenario of social media legacy planning has become a reality. In the digitised future, memories can be made immortal. Our data can be turned into bots. Protests can happen from the comforts of our own homes. Humans, androids and robots are all adrift in cyberspace. Through the stories of seven characters, Sanctuary investigates how technology can potentially erode our humanity, even as it provides more ease of access to goods, services, and communications with one another.

Journey to the West, Jurong & Beyond

Inspired by the legendary 16th century tale of a Buddhist monk's pilgrimage to the “Western Region”, this tour will be an exploration of Singapore’s Western part. Known mainly for its industrial zone and shipyards, Jurong will surprise you with its hills, gardens, national monuments, with its important past but also its a vibrant future.

To honour the roots of the Journey to the West tale, we will start our journey with a visit to Singapore’s most bizarre and unforgettable attraction – Haw Par Villa, formerly known as the Tiger Balm Gardens. A true gem from a lost era, this one-of-its-kind theme park with its over 1000 quirky statues and gruesome depictions of underworld will introduce you to Chinese Mythology & Folklore.

Next we will head to Jurong Hill and The Eye in the Sky, the Jurong Hill Lookout Tower which hosted many foreign dignitaries including royalty, and which offers a panoramic view of the entire industrial zone. On the way there we will visit another heritage gem, Jurong Town Hall, a boldly futuristic building and a symbol of Singapore’s industrial push.

Our pilgrimage will continue at Nanyang University; designed in the Chinese National style, blending both traditional Chinese and modern elements, the former university building is a witness to the history of the Chinese diaspora and education.

Last but not least will be our visit to the Dragon Kiln, one of the last surviving brick-built kilns in Singapore. The firing of this kiln takes place only twice a year and we will be there to witness this now fairly rare occurrence, and to understand and appreciate the disappearing art of wood-firing!

THIS WILL BE A FUN OUTING FOR CHILDREN TOO!

Jane's SG Tours in Korean/Kampong Glam Walk (캄퐁글람 워킹투어)

이국적인 정취가 가득한 싱가포르 캄퐁글람 워킹투어

안녕하세요! Jane's SG Tours 한국어 가이드 비비시스터즈입니다.

싱가포르에서 이국적인 정취가 가득한 캄퐁글람, 저희와 함께 걸으며 한때 이곳에 살았던 말레이 왕족들의 드라마틱한 흥망성쇠 이야기와 싱가포르 문화의 뿌리인 말레이 문화 속에 푹 빠져봅시다!!

[간략 코스 안내]

부기스 MRT역 출발-> 잘란 쿠보 이슬람 공동묘지-> 말라바 모스크 -> 알사고프 마드라사 (이슬람 종교 학교) -> 말레이 헤리티지 센터 -> 술탄 모스크 -> 부소라 스트리트 -> 말레이 전통 문화 체험 (말레이 전통 디저트 시식, 무알콜 향수 (아타) 시향, 말레이 전통 의상 입어보기 등) -> 하지 레인 (종착지)

[캄퐁글람은 어떤 곳인가요?]

우리에게 아랍 스트리트로 더 잘 알려진 캄퐁글람은 싱가포르의 원주민이자 다민족 국가인 싱가포르에서 두 번째로 큰 민족인 말레이인들이 모여 살았던 곳입니다. 마치 차이나타운에는 중국 이민자들이, 리틀인디아에는 인도 이민자들이 모여 살았던 것처럼 말이죠. 그런데 캄퐁글람에는 한때 말레이 왕족들이 살던 궁전과 그들이 이용했던 이슬람 사원, 심지어 그들이 죽은 후에 묻힌 묘지가 지금까지 남아있습니다. 어쩐지 그들의 흥망성쇠 이야기가 궁금해지지 않나요?

캄퐁글람의 랜드마크이면서 싱가포르에서 가장 아름다운 이슬람 사원인 술탄 모스크에도 재미있는 이야기가 많이 담겨 있습니다. 캄퐁글람에 살았던 말레이인들과 아랍인들의 종교인 이슬람교를 직접 모스크를 방문하면서 배우는 것도 의미 있을 것입니다.

캄퐁글람 골목 구석 구석에는 전통 가게들이 남아 있습니다. 역사 깊은 카페에 잠깐 앉아 알록달록하고 달콤한 말레이 전통 디저트를 맛보며 잠시 쉬었다가, 무슬림들이 사용하는 무알콜 향수와 화려한 말레이 전통 의상도 만나 봅시다.

마지막으로는 캄퐁글람에서 가장 트렌디한 곳, 하지 레인 골목을 돌아보며, 그곳에 담긴 이야기도 듣고 멋진 인생샷도 남겨 보세요.

[준비물 및 주의사항]

- 투어는 정시에 시작하므로 투어 시작 시간보다 10분 정도 일찍 오시길 바랍니다.

- 가벼운 옷차림, 편안한 신발 (운동화 등), 물, 우산 또는 우의를 준비해 주세요.

- 유모차 또는 휠체어 이용 방문객은 계단 등 투어 경로 여건으로 인해 참여가 어려우니 양해 부탁드립니다.

- 투어 중 발생하는 안전사고에 대해서는 저희가 책임지지 않으며, 안전에 대비하여 해외여행자보험에 가입하시고 투어에 참여하기를 권장합니다.

- 갑작스런 기후 변화 또는 투어 예정 장소의 예기치 못한 상황 발생시 투어 경로 변경 및 취소가 발생할 수 있음을 알려드립니다.

Tuesday Discovery Walk- The Hidden Treasures of Orchard Rd

Orchard Road - the name conjures up visions of glitzy shops, glamorous hotels & hi-end restaurants run by celebrity chefs. But dig a little deeper and you’ll unearth much less known nooks & crannies which bear testament to its earlier years as an area replete with plantations, farms - & yes, orchards!

And just to prove this is a different Orchard Road, we'll start at the very...end! Starting at Dhoby Ghaut to learn the origins of its name, we'll visit one of the oldest churches in Singapore known as the “Scots Church”, nestled in beside Singapore’s incubators for art talents - SOTA and LASALLE. A walk past the Istana Park for a glimpse of the official residence of the President of Singapore will remind us Singapore’s colonial roots, & you can also admire the nearby facade of the last remaining traditional southern Chinese mansion.

And finally you will be blown away by the beauty of Emerald Hill with its Peranakan shophouses, a tucked away enclave of tranquility a stone's throw from hustle and bustle of the Orchard shopping district.

Tuesday Discovery Walk - Meet Singapore's Early Pioneers

 

Come with us to explore our island's oldest neighbourhood, and learn about the early pioneers who helped shape Singapore's future. Step back to a time when CHIJMES was a peaceful oasis, occupied by French nuns dedicated to girls' education and the abandoned babies left to their care. A time when the La Salle Brothers founded Singapore's earliest Roman Catholic church, next to which Indian convicts built their prison. A time when an ambitious Irish architect left his everlasting imprint on this fledgling colony.

Discover the rich tapestry of the Waterloo Street arts precinct, a small but vibrant area which is emblematic of Singapore's cultural and religious diversity. Here you'll find a Synagogue, a Roman Catholic church, a Buddhist and a Hindu Temple, as well as a calligraphy centre, dance studio, visual arts centre, street art and much more.

Small Group Walking tours have a maximum of 10 participants but also need a minimum number of 7 to go ahead; if we don't have enough people we will inform those who have registered (& refund their payment) by the evening before at the very latest. But we hope they will always run!!
